Please be advised these works have been rescheduled to take place between 1st and 5th February. 


The canal and towpath will remain open.

Vegetation contractors will be clearing vegetation on the offside of the canal to facilitate a new canal footbridge to be installed later in the year. Vegetation which overhangs the towpath and canal will be removed during the night, to reduce the impact on our customers. A banksman will be in place to manage movement and customers are advised to take extra care when passing through the work area. The remaining vegetation will be cleared during the day. Any trees and vegetation which has been cleared will be replanted plus 10% elsewhere on the canal network.
